Closing Address – Culture Hang-ups in Paramedicine and Why Leading with Love is the Answer

Across Australia and the world, ambulance services are embarking on enormous reform agendas. Critical to the success of those reforms are organisational cultures where people feel safe, valued and empowered. To help our organisations and profession achieve its fullest potential, we must shake some of our lingering culture hang-ups. Leading with love offers a real solution to these hang-ups, and is a critical capability required of current, future and aspiring leaders within the profession. It’s an approach to leadership that will ensure our people and organisations can deliver the best care to communities for years to come.
